Today, the world faces unprecedented challenges brought on by a global population that is expected to grow to nine billion people by 2050.
According to the United Nations, global food production must be 70% greater than today’s level to feed the world. At this session, we will highlight the Global Food Security Index, developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and sponsored by DuPont. This is a tool which can be used to promote discussion and collaboration among all stakeholders across the packaging and food value chain to stimulate action to feed a growing population.
